    It was a nice day so I decided to go up and watch my quail and took my camera [​IMG]

    First vid is of my Golden Coturnix Roo Hawn courting his hens. I had no idea that coturnixs even courted! Hawn is deffinatly my first roo ive seen do it. He stands up really tall, outstreatches his neck and makes a penguin type sounding growl as he stalks the hens:

    Second vid is of Hawn crowing:

    This is Enceno my pure white Coturnix roo, he reminds me of a dove:

    Cuuuute little chickies!

    I love the video of the quail crowing. It's much more pleasant than a chicken crowing, isn't it? [​IMG]

    Quote:I actually have a few for sale right now, 6+ $6 to cover shipping, and $5 for the eggs themselves if you're interested.

    They're from the same hen and roo as these. However, I can only accept money orders and cashiers checks. if you're interested pm me [​IMG]
